I'm looking for a reliable source of information about the original air dates of the individual episodes of two 1980s anime programs: Beast King Golion (百獣王ゴライオン H) and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (機甲艦隊ダイラガーXV フィフティーン).

Wikipedia lists what are purported to be original air dates of the first and last episodes of each program (March 4, 1981 – February 24, 1982 for Golion, and 3 March 1982 – 23 March 1983 for Dairugger), but I'd like to know the original air dates of every episode of each program, and I'd like to be reasonably confident that the information is complete and accurate. (Anyone can edit Wikipedia, and I don't know how reliable other online sources might be.)

Does anyone know how I might obtain this information? If it matters, I am in no way fluent in Japanese.

    The ja.wikipedia page for Golion has a table of airdates; col 1 is episode #; col 2 is the airdate. Likewise for Dairugger. Should be easy to interpret even without knowing Japanese. I don't know anything about these shows, so I can't speak to the veracity of this information. – senshin Jan 21 '17 at 0:07

    "1981年3月4日" means "year 1981, month 3, day 4" = "March 4, 1981", and so forth. Generally speaking, Japanese Wikipedia has proven to be an accurate source of information for anime topics I'm familiar with, so I would be inclined to believe that this information is correct as well. – senshin Jan 21 '17 at 0:13
  • @senshin, although I would prefer a more reliable source than Wikipedia, I'm super-impressed by the level of detail on the pages that you provided links for. Thank you for replying! – Dynotherm Connector Jan 24 '17 at 17:13
